Reach & Invest (Intercultural Programs)

Reach programs are planned and led by the Student Leader Initiating Diversity Education (SLIDErs) and feature speakers, artists, films, and other activities that focus around social justice topics. Invest sessions are student led facilitations (by Intercultural Development Leaders and SLIDErs) that address current hot button issues, social justice awareness, and multiple and intersecting identities. Both sets of co-curricular programs enhance classroom learning and raise awareness about social justice.
